Wonders Never Cease

Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, has tweeted “End the CCP” in response to a CNN report describing the digital “health” app that the Chinese government is using to track everyone in the country, to collect personal data on a daily basis, to assign arbitrary color-coded “health status” categories to each human being, to use this “health code” system to bar people from...

Precedents

Nancy Pelosi, a profiteering progressive fool who happens to be the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, made a brief visit to Taiwan this week. Communist China objected, and claimed her visit was a terrible provocation — because they want to do to Taiwan what Vladimir Putin is currently trying to do to Ukraine. Time Magazine, or whatever they call their online...

Expert Pretends She Knew

Dr. Deborah Birx, Anthony Fauci’s righthand fabricator in the Trump administration’s totalitarian overreach squad during the pandemic, has now said in a television interview that she and they knew they “overplayed” the vaccines, which, while they (allegedly) reduce the risk of severe illness, do not significantly reduce either the risk of contracting Covid-19 or the risk of spreading it to others. She further...

America, Then and Now

Here is a headline I just read, summarizing a letter to the editor at the LA Times criticizing Bill Maher’s calls to let Americans move on from Covid restrictions: “‘Done’ with COVID? Thank God our grandparents weren’t ‘done’ with World War II.” The obvious difference between the two cases reveals the even more obvious difference between the American mainstream of today, as represented...

The Statement Spotify Will Never Issue

Joni Mitchell has joined Neil Young in demanding that Spotify remove her music from its platform, in protest against Joe Rogan’s podcast, which discusses the Covid-19 pandemic in terms that do not perfectly align with the Biden administration’s official statements. Since Young and Mitchell are both Canadian by birth and upbringing, it is not surprising that they are so quick to favor authoritarian...

Humans Are Dumb

Today I found, on my MSN news feed, a typical fearmongering headline in these days of continuous authoritarian propaganda: “Omicron Patients Becoming ‘Really Sick in a Different Way.’” The quotation in that headline, as I discovered, is from a “leading ER doctor,” specifically an associate professor from Columbia University Medical Center. The linked news item is a short video report, in which scare...

Fear and the Lepers

Jesus walked among the lepers and touched them. Today, by contrast, we are urged to treat the quite healthy but merely “unvaccinated” as worse than lepers — as social outcasts to whom we shall not even grant the small dignity of delivering them baskets of food. And not only must we not touch our unclean ones, but we are not to speak of...

Health Questionnaire

Do you believe that living longer, or living with the least risk to physical health and safety, is or ought to be the primary and overriding factor in living well? Do you believe that maintaining a clear line of demarcation between government officials recommending a course of action and the state demanding a course of action is an essential condition for preserving a...

Terrifying New Tortures

The other day, I unearthed dozens of cases of overt fraud and deliberate misinformation designed to stoke unjustified fear and mass panic for the purpose of tyrannical manipulation — that is to say, I scrolled through the headlines on my Microsoft News homepage. As usual of late, most of the major stories were about COVID-19, and almost all of these were presented with...

Numbers vs. Reality

There is no truth in numbers. Numbers are facts. Truth is not about facts. Proof of what I mean by this may be found in a brief examination of a headline making the rounds of the global progressive propaganda wing (i.e., news media) today, as in this example from the BBC: “Coronavirus: Covid-19 death toll hits 500,000 worldwide.” What is your reaction to...
